mr tan's kelong singapore

One of the highlights of eating back home was Mr Tan’s Kelong, a wooden house on stilts at sea off the coast of Changi and not far from Pulau Ubin island. Thanks to food friend and cook extraordinaire S, we ate our heart out on the freshing seafood and catches of the day. I don’t have […]

Found these photos from over a year ago and realised that I never wrote about my last Taipei trip. I no longer go on the hunt for “best this and that” following the crowds, but instead spend more time in the moment, wandering and discovering instead of checking things off a list. Here’s what I […]

I loved chef Adam’s cooking at Chachawan and used to eat there regularly. I am happy to report that his new outfit Samsen is just as great, with a focus on more simple food, plenty of appetisers and noodles options. V’s favourite is the egg with chilli jam, it was nice, but my Thai friend PJ […]

The latest spot in town for some specialty coffee, savory crepes, club sandwiches and a dessert menu. Bright airy with plenty of natural light streaming in from the skylit glass ceiling. Service is still spotty, every new opening’s teething problems, but the food is simple, fresh and good. A café type spot that has been […]

Checked out this cute little restaurant just across from the A-Ma temple at Barra the other day with FC who always knows the coolest, newest spots! Featuring them in an upcoming piece for Travel + Leisure South East Asia’s edition on Macau. Previously, this spot was a cha chaan teng and got a little makeover […]

Checked this out last month shortly after they opened their new Star Street precinct brunch on Wing Fung St (same street as Saigon Garçon and Oohlala). Unlike most places in Macau that open at 11am-noon, Elephant Grounds opens at 8am, so you can have breakfast and get your morning brew before heading off to work. […]
